DOL funds job training for young parents

The U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration will provide approximately $5 million in demonstration grants targeting the employment and training needs of young parents.

The goal of the Young Parents Demonstration program is to provide educational and occupational skills training leading to family economic self sufficiency to both mothers and fathers, and expectant mothers ages 16 to 24. Projects funded will be encouraged to serve young parents in high-risk categories, including those who are court-involved, in the child welfare or foster care system, homeless, or victims of child abuse.  For more information, go here.

Applications due November 17, 2008.
